I actually think it looks better where they have the lights installed compared to where they don't. Where there isn't a light installed it looks like there is a hole.
That's because they are holes and have been since the structure was built. Never quite realized how poor of an appearance it was until now.
My only concern is that the accountants have forced some value engineering here and we won't get coverage of the entire sphere. As shown in the concept art btw. Not sure a band around the middle will have nearly the same effect. Time will tell if that is the plan.
